LongHorn Steakhouse opens at ATL
HMSHost and Darden Restaurants, opened LongHorn Steakhouse in Concourse C at Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport earlier this month.
This is the first Darden restaurant that HMSHost will operate. LongHorn will serve never frozen, steaks that are hand-seasoned and grilled on the restaurant’s hot steel flat-top and open flame char grills. This partnership marks HMSHost as the first domestic franchisee to work with Darden.
“As Darden continues to grow, non-traditional locations hold intriguing possibilities for our brands,” said Terry Stanley, Senior Vice President of Business Development for Darden.
LongHorn Steakhouse started in Atlanta’s Buckhead community in 1981, becoming a household name during the infamous “SnowJam” of January 1982. Since that time, LongHorn has brought signature Bone-in Outlaw Ribeye, Flo’s Filet and new 30-ounce Porterhouse for Two. Today, there are more than 400 LongHorn Steakhouse restaurants in 36 states. The restaurant also serves fresh chicken and fish, ribs that are slow roasted and hand basted, and fresh salads that are hand chopped and tossed to order.
